Parker Task Force Seeks Donations from the Community for Thanksgiving Meals 

Posted

The Parker Task Force is asking for the community’s help in making the Thanksgiving holiday brighter for local families in need. The food bank is seeking donations of holiday food baskets so that families may prepare Thanksgiving meals in their homes.  Food baskets should feed a family of four to six people and contain a complete Thanksgiving meal:    

Food baskets should feed a family of four to six people and contain a complete Thanksgiving meal: frozen turkey, chicken broth, canned green beans, butter stuffing, canned cream of mushroom soup, gravy packets or jars, canned fruit pie, potatoes (5-pound bags).

These baskets (or boxes) may be dropped off at the Parker Task Force building at 19105 Longs Way between 9 a.m. and noon on the following days prior to Thanksgiving:  Friday Nov. 11, Saturday Nov. 12, Tuesday Nov. 15, Wednesday, Nov. 16, Friday Nov. 18, and Saturday, Nov. 19.

The meals will be distributed on Sunday Nov. 20. 

The food bank is also seeking monetary donations in any amount. Steve Budnack, Chairman of the Parker Task Force said, “The holiday season is a vital time to raise money for all non-profits.  Any additional funds collected during Thanksgiving will be used to help provide limited financial assistance to prevent eviction or utility shut-off through the winter months.”   

Checks made payable to the Parker Task Force (memo: Thanksgiving) may be mailed to the Parker Task Force, 19105 Longs Way, Parker.  You may also make a Thanksgiving contribution using PayPal through the Parker Task Force website, www.parkertaskforce.org.   

The Task Force can also use gift cards from local grocery stores.  These are used to purchase perishable food for the food bank, for example, milk, eggs, cheese, meat and produce.   

If you would like more information about the Thanksgiving efforts, call the Parker Task Force at 303-841-3460 or send an email to foodbank@parkertaskforce.org.
